where viktor yanukovych said he apologized for the state that ukraine was in, that he didn't have the strength or the power to maintain civility. apart from that, it was a display of defiance. he was also justifying many decisions that he made, as he said fleeing the country not because he was relinquishing power, but he and his family's lives were under threat. he said that he wasn't calling for military interception. that is something that will go down or accepted with relief i suppose in ukraine. he said that he did not order the troops and the police in ukraine to fire on protestors. he said also that he hadn't spoken to vladimir putin in person yet, but had a conversation with him on the phone. now, we will wait to see what is next from viktor yanukovych, the man who's still calling himself the president of ukraine. >> yeah, we sure will, rory, for the time being, thank you very much. there are also growing signs that crimea is rebelling against the new leadership in kiev. the interior minister of ukraine accused the kremlin in moscow of directing armed units to occupy a regi

civilization. even if ukraine doesn't for mallly split into two states as it might, but this divide isn't going away. and if i'm right, think what that now means. a new cold war with all the dangers of the old one but now right on russia's borders. that can't be good for anybody. >> from the government perspective in the u.s., what does that mean. geo politically ukraine is crucial. it is the biggest european country and it is a big border with russia crimea as we have said was part of russia in the past. so, what does the u.s. do given the importance? >> well secretary of state john kerry has been in touch with his colleague, neither country wants to intervene at this stage. in america, let's understand first of all there is no lust or desire on the part of the american people to intervene and get entangled in global war. we have seen that. we saw that with syria. it is interesting that foreign minister and john kerry have already over syria last august worked out a diplomatic approach. i think the eu, the united states and russia have to be deeply concerned about a very grim reality. ukraine
violation of russia's commitment to respect the independence, sovereignty, and choices of the ukraine and international laws. it would invite the condemnation of nations around the world, and indeed, the united states will stand with the international community in supporting that there would be costs for any military action in the ukraine. this has reminded us how difficult democracy can be in a country with deep divisions. human beings have a universal right to determine their own future. right now, the situation remains fluid. vice president biden just spoke with prime minister -- the prime minister of ukraine to assure him that in this difficult moment the united states supports his government's everts and stands for sovereignty, territorial integrity, and the democratic future of the ukraine. i also commend the ukrainian government's restraint. we will continue to communicate with our european allies. we will continue to communicate directly with the russian government. we will continue to keep all of you in the press court and the american people informed. thank you very much. o
at stake here for the united states? >> well, the importance of ukraine, its european engagement, i mean i think for the future-- i think we have to establish the premise that honest, functioning, competent democracies are good for world peace, are good for the people of those countries, first of all.ot had that. and it's only hope for that evolving, painful though it will be in its birth is in my judgement, the united states and the eu working together, and being in for the long haul. >> but when it comes to russia, though, tensions keep rising. we're counting on the russians in some regard, if iran, in syria. >> yeah. >> i mean in a host of troubled parts of the world. >> yeah, if you wanted to view them, the bad things that could happen, mentioned earlier on the program, just the possibility of missed calculation. i never thought one was going to happen either. you could have miscalculations and really had something recently terrible if ukraine breaks up. so there's that. but as you say, he could say you mess with me in ukraine i will really mess with you and the parts you really care a

are not russians so what about their rights? i think ukraine is a state that has existed in its current frontiers a number of years and there is no persecution of the russians either in crimea or in ukraine itself. i think the situation settles down or calms down, i think the people can cohabit, work together and basically ukraine remains an integral state secure in its own territorial limits. >> thomas roberts? >> you wrote an op-ed for the continuation times. i want to read in part. russian needs a finland option for ukraine. the u.s. should convey to mr. putin prepared to make its influence -- will pursue policies towards russia and similar to those on so feven effectivelily practiced by fin lad. sir, when we talk specifically and pull back the players you talked about earlier money. if we follow the money. who is most supportive to ukraine and where the loyalty will remain with the eu with the west or russia? >> i think four sources of money for ukraine at this stage. one is the international community and the united states can be very active in that world -- and so forth and the united state

that is where putin wants to go. but he is telling the ukraine, and europe and the united states that they need to deal with him. and no government is going to survive long in the ukraine without them. it is an intelligence-gathering ship, you should see what we do to them. it may have some political significance but my guess is it sailed from russia long before the crisis reached ukraine. >> all right, i want to play a segment of what secretary of state john kerry has said about the two super powers, let's take a listen. >> we're hoping that russia will not see this as sort of a continuation of the cold war. we don't see it that way. we do not believe this should be an east/west, russia/united states. this is not rocky iv. >> i mean, does that seem like he is minimalizing it to you? talking about rocky movies. this is serious stuff. >> well, it is basically what president obama said last week. he said we're not in competition with russia over ukraine, i don't see this as moving pieces around on the cold war board. if you don't think that putin doesn't have a strategy to deal with ukraine that
